Personalized Gift Card tin...


This "bandage tin" was used to hold a gift card. I created it for someone near and dear to my heart. (Hi EJ!) She loves WaWa milkshakes, so I got her a gift card and put it inside this personalized tin. Perfect fit! I just love personalizing these tins. So quick and easy. Taking the same idea for the Post-it note Key Ring (a few posts ago) I used the Together Forever and Defining Alphabets sets. Lots of pink made this very girly...but you could make it any theme you like. I did a tin with a cow theme this summer (Hi DD) and will be making lots for Christmas gifts.

9/25 Sr.Center Class

Cranberry Crisp Pocket Silhouettes
Night of Navy Pocket Silhouettes
Eat Drink & Be Scary
Upsy Daisy


For my Sr. Center class this week, I used some of the stamp sets that are currently on special from Stampin' Up! I personally LOVE Upsy Daisy. My Mom designed the Old Olive Z-Fold card...that was a big help...I was feeling tapped out and Mom stepped up to give me a hand. When you've been stamping as long as I have, it's had to come up with simple cards that aren't boring. The addition of the unique fold helped make the simple card more dramatic. Thanks Mom!

Post-it Note keyring...

I had a meeting yesterday with my Downline. We made these simple personalized Post-it Note keyrings. We used the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper for the cover. I love how these papers are double sided and looked so finished on the inside. Click on the photo to enlarge and note the different styles of cutting out the Together Forever frame.

The ingredients:

Bella Rose Designer Series Paper (love it!)
Riding Hood Red Ink
Pink Pirouette CS
Whisper White CS
Together Forever (pg. 57)
Defining Alphabet (pg. 156)
1-1/4 circle punch
Crop-a-dile
keyring

Sr. Center Cards...




Just cleaning up loose ends from the Spring. It was a busy summer at our house...it always is. These are the 4 cards the ladies made in May. The photos were taken in natural light and the colors are "off". We used the following sets:
~Always for the bird card.
~Simply Said for the pink card
~Very little stamping on the 3rd card...ink and CS
are River Rock that matched the printed vellum exactly, just not in this photo.
~And finally, Bloomin' Beautiful stamp set.
I'll post more cards from the class Sept. 11 soon.
Thanks for stopping by...
